Join us as and our guests, the Tree of Life Pittsburgh delegation from New Light Congregation as we march together and honor the visionary work of Martin Luther King, Jr. and support the Charleston YWCA ’s 46th Annual Federal Holiday Parade.

Meet at Burke High School, 244 President St. NO LATER THAN 9:15 am; parade begins at 10:00 am.

Jewish community organizations encouraged to bring banners and signs; CJF will have signs available as well.

The parade will conclude at the corner of King St. and Calhoun St. Strollers, wagons, wheelchairs and walkers are not only welcomed but encouraged! Parade route is about 1.5 miles.

Please contact BrandonF@jewishcharleston.org with questions.

Just as Rabbi Heschel marched with Dr. King, we walk in solidarity with the 30,000 celebrants who support the events throughout the Lowcountry, and our friends who like our neighbors at Mother Emanuel AME Church, survived a tragedy fueled by hatred, racism and anti-semitism. We will together honor the legacy of a leader who left a legacy of love and mutual respect for all people.
